  Understanding marine predator habitat use in the Mediterranean through eDNA
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S Goodman, Dr E Valsecchi
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Overview. Understanding how animals use their habitats in relation to environmental and ecological factors is fundamental to basic ecological studies, evaluating potential exposure to impacts from human activities, and assessing species vulnerability to climate and ecosystem change.
  Design of an emission reduction system for electricity generators with biodiesel from waste cooking oil
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr N Rahmanian, Dr JP Li
Applications accepted all year round
Waste cooked oil, containing fat and grease, is widely available at pubs, cafes, canteens and restaurant and has a large influence on the environment.
  Flow characteristics and sediment transport in vegetated compound channels
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round
The project is to examine the effect of vegetations on the open channel/river flow and sediment transport. It is well known that plants can reduce flow velocity, and thus sediment transport by creating additional flow resistance, leading to the increase of the river flooding.
  Environmental assessment of offshore wind energy devices
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round
The installation of Offshore Wind Energy Device (OWED) will inevitably alter the flow patterns around the devices. This may enhance the sediment transport and scour around the foundation, thus leading to the instability of offshore wind energy device foundation, and further resultant failure of the whole system.
  The genetic basis of recent loss of self-incompatibility in North American Arabidopsis lyrata
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr A Tedder, Dr K Poterlowicz
Applications accepted all year round
The shift to self-pollination (or selfing) is one of the most prevalent evolutionary transitions in flowering plants. Charles Darwin (1876) studied selfing using extensive ecological experiments.
  Tropical land-use change and regional climate
  Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 2 January 2019
Rapid deforestation and degradation are occurring across the tropics. This land-use change impacts the surface energy balance, water and carbon cycles through changes to land-surface properties and through smoke emitted by forest and vegetation fires (Spracklen et al., 2018).
  Deforestation, forest degradation and fire in the tropics
  Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 2 January 2019
The aim of this PhD project is to understand the links between tropical deforestation, forest degradation and fire and to quantify the impacts on regional air quality and climate.
  Economic Impact of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr R Patel, Dr N Rahmanian, Dr Z Hussain
Applications accepted all year round
The reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases is agreed in November 2016 in the Paris international agreement (IEA Dec. 2016). The agreement is expected to create a transformative change in the energy sector to combat climate change.
  The socio-ecology of keeping Britain tidy: biodiversity conservation and the aesthetics of unruly landscapes
  Dr G Holmes
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Many species of conservation value depend on particular ecological niches, which can be narrow, and the flourishing of these species depends on having sufficient quality and quantity of such habitats.
  Modelling climate-smart options for the management of nitrogen on agricultural land
  Prof A Challinor, Dr M Galdos
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The grand societal challenge of managing natural resources effectively under environmental change is central to the future management of agricultural land.
